Free-agent-to-be Thabo Sefolosha does not know whether he'll be back with the Oklahoma City Thunder next season, he told reporters at his end-of-season media availability on Sunday.

Sefolosha was acquired by the Thunder in the 2008-2009 season and was immediately inserted into the starting lineup, where he remained until Game 3 of the Western Conference finals against the San Antonio Spurs a week ago. When he went to the bench, he was taken completely out of the rotation. He called this "very frustrating," via ESPN's Royce Young.

At 30 years old, Sefolosha's future with Oklahoma City has seemed cloudy for a while. He's still an excellent defender, but his three-point percentage dropped from 42 percent to 31 percent this season, and the Thunder have young wing player Jeremy Lamb waiting for an opportunity. Reggie Jackson performed admirably when given the starting two-guard spot against the Spurs, putting pressure on the defense with his ability to create offense and run the pick-and-roll. These are things that Sefolosha has not done in Oklahoma City.

He could still have a place with the Thunder, but it would likely have to be in a reduced role. At this stage of his career, the same is probably true if Sefolosha is to sign with any other contender.
